Share the Lamb

Exodus 12:4 (NLT) If a family is too small to eat a whole animal, let them share with another family in the neighborhood.

Christmas is just over a week away. The Houses in my neighborhood are decorated with lights, the malls are busy, and we may even have snowfall before Christmas Eve. This is one of my favorite times of the year. Unfortunately, for some---it is a hard time of year. For some people who have lost a loved one, it may be their first Christmas without them. Other people have financial stress or relationship issues that make this a difficult season.

As the body of Christ, we are the avenue for God to flow through to the unsaved. For the most part, people are reminded that Jesus is the reason for the season. Whether they know God or not---He is on their minds. Christmas time, being such a roller coaster of emotions, is a great time for the church body to reveal Jesus.

God sent His Son to provide salvation to the world. He did this because He loves the world---even if they are living in sin. This Christmas I am going to make a point of  letting God flow through me. The Bible says in Galatians 5:22-23 (NLT), "The Holy Spirit produces this kind of fruit in our lives: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control." These are powerful tools for sharing Christ.

Stay connected to God through this wonderful season and let Him flow through you. People are more likely to see God when He is on their mind. Pray according to 2 Corinthians 9:10, "Now may He who supplies seed to the sower, and bread for food, supply and multiply the seed you have sown and increase the fruits of your righteousness,"

Remain connected by acknowledging His continual presence. This is how you connect to the flow of God. Chances are you will sow a seed into someone that could lead them to Christ.

Be blessed & be a blessing!
